JAPANESE TATTOOS – With the variety and skill of tattoo artist

Posted in japanese tattoos on October 7, 2010 by tattoocase

With the variety and skills of tattoo artists, one has to wonder why Japanese tattoos are still so popular today. But the truth is, it is not all that surprising. With the colorful history and vast array of designs, Japanese tattoos are not only aesthetically pleasing, but can carry a good deal of meaning.

The remarkable history and style of the Japanese culture has always mystified the Western world. Signs of this are seen most commonly in tattoos. One of the most popular of these is the Kanji tattoo. Kanji is a calligraphy style writing used by the Japanese. The beauty of this particular style of tattoo is both its simplicity and its diversity. You can convey practically any message you wish with the simple and stylish characters.

Other popular styles of Japanese tattoos are steeped in real life or fantasy. From dragons to koi fish, qilin — which are said to be a good omen, bringing serenity and prosperity — to romantic flora like cherry blossoms and lotuses.

japanese tattoosThe beauty of Japanese tattoos is that you can go well beyond symbols or small, meaningful signs, and create masterful pieces that can cover large areas of your body. For instance, many images can portray beautiful outdoor scenes with large billowy clouds, wind or even fantastic, old fashioned scenes of a wavy ocean. These are often taken from the ukiyo-e or “pictures of the floating world”, which is a genre of Japanese woodcuts. These remarkable scenes can be mixed with many figures from either an outdoor scene, such as flowers or animals; folkloric characters, or something more meaningful to you personally.

Another thing to keep in mind is placement. For instance a hikae, or chest panel tattoo, is a classic placement. This tattoo starts at the chest and blends out into the shoulder, and often down the arm. A nagasode tattoo is considered a “sleeve” piece and starts under the shoulder and down to the wrist, while a shichibu is 7/10ths of the sleeve and gobu is 5/10ths.

Many people take Japanese tattoos further than just covering large portions of their body. Instead, they opt to cover almost their entire body, from neck to mid-thigh. These are often seen with a multicolored pictorial tattoo of the Suikoden, which was, and still is a massively popular set of four novels in Chinese literature. It was originally translated in Japan in 1757 and woodcuts were created for these stories in 1827. Since then, many people enjoy these rich and colorful tattoos that tell classic and unmistakable stories.

Despite the fact that tattooing is still considered rather on the taboo side in Japan, those who seek out either rebellion or a sense of beauty will find themselves drawn to the mystical, unique and splendid style of Japanese tattoos. This style will continue to have a draw for its variety and its colorful nature.

Zodiac Symbol Tattoos
People usually get zodiac symbol tattoos purely as an expression of their belief in the art of astrology. They feel compelled to show pride in their place in our solar system. However, the manner which people go about this are as varied as the signs themselves.

Simple designs are common in zodiac symbol tattoos. Small symbols featuring the western zodiac signs (an arrow for Sagittarius, waves for Aquarius, etc.) lined in black are simple, stylish and easy to place. Another example of this is the Chinese zodiac symbols. These are in a similar design, but use kanji script as an indication of each particular sign. These small, unique symbols can also easily be transitioned into tribal tattoos. Making the softer edges into sharper ones, and even adding touches of red.

Though simplicity is one option, many people choose to create much larger displays for their zodiac symbol tattoos. They may use symbols, or a more literal translation of their sign. For instance a Taurean may use a strong and aggressive looking bull pressing through the skin with a determined look; or a Gemini might create a modest symbol of a set of cherubic twins embracing.If a person is born on a cusp, they may choose to blend both of their zodiac signs together in a tattoo, thus symbolizing the energy of both signs. Some may also like to blend their star, sun and moon signs together, so as to express the full spectrum of their astrological influences.

An interesting option for those born between November 30th and December 17th is Ophiuchus. It is under a good deal of debate as to whether or not this truly is the 13th sign of the Zodiac, but for those with a keen interest and an eye for design, this can be a great idea. This sign is often depicted with a Greek-like god struggling with a massive serpent. In symbol form, it is seen as a winged staff with two snakes coiling around each other. The staff is often surrounded by the zodiac wheel.

Zodiac symbol tattoos are one of several ways a person can express their personal identity, and can show just one of many things that make them who they are. Though practically everything in life changes over time, a person’s birth and the stars will always remain the same.

People nowadays use tattoo designs to convey their own characters. Everyone has his or her own personal reason for getting a tattoo. It could mean a trademark or a personal image that symbolizes individuality and preference. Whatever the design, a tattoo is a symbol and representation of something of deep meaning or a tribute to someone very special to you. Before you get one, you can choose from among the different designs available. And one of the popular designs is the floral tattoo. Flowers usually signify different meanings. Just like the lotus tattoo which has strong symbolic meanings and powerful statements of personal characteristic.

The lotus tattoo usually relates to different meanings such as the process of how it grows. Can you imagine how the lotus amazingly grows from down the pond? Anything that grows under the pond is something that you would not imagine as being beautiful since the pond’s environment is kind of muddy and gross, but the lotus actually blooms here.

Lotus grows as a small flower at the bottom of a pond and its vine slowly grows up towards the surface of the pond. The bud facing downwards as the vine grows up towards the sunlight. Once the vine reaches the surface of the pond and the light, the lotus begins to bloom and turn out to be a beautiful flower.

How the lotus flowers blossom into a beautiful flower despite of the fact that it grows from the slimy mud of the pond and that it was able to rise from the mud towards the sunlight and bloom into a pretty flower is something that symbolizes power, strength, and life.

Here are some meanings attributed to a lotus tattoo:

* symbolizes love and sometimes the longing for love.
* signifies life, birth, and the beauty it denotes to people.
* could also mean rejuvenation or good transformation.

A lotus is not only a significant flower for some people; it is also a beautiful body art that makes it very popular floral tattoo. The rich meaning of a lotus flower as a tattoo and its beauty make most of the tattoo artists very suggestive of the design. Using this design they can easily create a very colorful and lively body art.

Certainly, the lotus tattoo design is a very remarkable symbol of your personality. If you will get a lotus tattoo design for your body art, you can wear it proudly, confidently, and artistically as a stand alone tattoo or paired with other floral or animal tattoos. With your lotus tattoo design, you can make a powerful statement of your beautiful and meaningful life, principle, and purpose.
